In the United States, Section 7 of the Fair Labor and Standards Act requires employers to provide reasonable break time for mothers to express milk with "a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk."  Mothers are protected until the child's first birthday under this law.  However, many moms have shared what their experience is like pumping at work with photos of their pumping area which include supply closets and unfortunately there are still moms having to pump in bathroom stalls.  Workplace accommodations are essential in improving a mother's breastfeeding goals.  Working moms deserve better!  Aeroflow Breastpumps saw the need to help support moms by getting more businesses on board and told me all about their brilliant idea!  They envisioned a Chip and Joanna Gaines styled Lactation Room Fixer Upper- and are having a giveaway where one winner will receive a in-person pumping room makeover with accessories!  If you are a working mom and want to nominate your employer or if you know of a business that would benefit, enter the Pumping Room Makeover Giveaway today!  
Four other moms that enter the giveaway will win a gift basket valued at $500 worth of breastfeeding and pumping supplies from sponsors like Spectra, Ameda, Evenflo, Lansinoh, Belly Bandit and Motif!  More details and rules on the Pumping Room Makeover below.

World Breastfeeding Week is August 1st-7th and is designated to celebrate, protect and promote breastfeeding. People all around the world come together during this week to provide breastfeeding information and resources, share achievements and offer guidance and/or support. Breastfeeding isn't always something that comes effortlessly, I certainly experienced a lot of bumps along the way, but I succeeded! The key is proper support, so my top breastfeeding advice is to look for help- join local breastfeeding groups, talk with breastfeeding counselors at WIC or go to La Leche League or Breastfeeding USA meetings, seek help from a qualified lactation consultant, read books and don't give up on your worst day! I also recognize that moms deserve to feel empowered and having the right breastfeeding products can be absolutely beneficial in getting you forward in your breastfeeding journey- whatever that may be!  So I thought I should host a World Breastfeeding Week 2018 Giveaway!
One lucky person will win an entire prize valued at over $115!  6 Breastfeeding Must-Haves- including a Milkies Milk-Saver, one package of two Lansinoh TheraPearl 3-in-1 Breast Therapy gel packs, a Getter Right Side Zip Nursing Bra, a 1 oz jar of Motherlove Nipple Cream, a package of 2 Hemp/Organic Cotton Nursing Pads from Owl Be Green and a custom made breastfeeding onesie from El & Em Boutique! More product details below.

When you're lactating, it's completely normal to leak milk.  Most moms notice it while nursing or pumping on just one side.  There are many different types of breast pads you can use that absorb the milk so you don't end up covered in breastmilk. I doubt I'm the only one right now thinking thank goodness for breast pads because if we didn't have them available, I can imagine the heaps and piles of laundry.  I've forgotten to wear them before and it's not that fun... overnight, especially.  But during the day, there's a way to collect every drop of milk that leaks! Maybe you already know about the Milkies Milk-Saver, because it is the #1 Breastmilk Collector out there!
You don't have to waste your breastmilk by using the Milkies Milk-Saver!  I'm going to share how exactly it works, all about the changes in the design over the years and my experience using it!
